Boeing stock (NYSE: BA) has fallen 27% in a month, while it’s down 39% YTD. Much of this fall came after the company reported downbeat Q1 results earlier this month. The company reported an 8% y-o-y decline in sales, and its loss widened. Both – commercial airplanes, and defense and space businesses – saw lower sales compared to the prior-year quarter. Furthermore, recently the stock came under pressure after a media report on a delay of six to eight weeks due to supply chain disruptions and labor issues from jet engine maker CFM International surfaced.

Boeing needs to ramp up its deliveries, which fell to 35 in April from the 41 jets it handed over in March, and investors are concerned about ramping up the jet deliveries in the near future. BA stock got some respite in yesterday’s trading session. The stock rose 5% after it brought the Starliner space capsule safely back to Earth, raising optimism for its space business among investors.

Now that BA has seen a fall of 27% in a month, will it continue its downward trajectory, or is a rise imminent? Going by historical performance, there is a slightly higher chance of a fall for BA stock over the next month. It’s uncommon for BA stock to fall at this pace.  Of 23 instances in the last ten years that BA stock saw a twenty-one-day fall of 27% or more, only 11 resulted in BA stock rising over the subsequent one-month period (twenty-one trading days). This historical pattern reflects 11 out of 23, or about a 48% chance of a rise in BA stock over the next month. See our analysis of Boeing Stock Chance of Rise for more details.
